Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Testing

While I prefer using Roksbox by a long shot, and it works for me, I have also set up a Plex Media Server as an alternate...Im not sure if the author has to basically re-write some or all of the code with the new OS changes, but I do know he is working on making it work (hasn’t abandoned the channel)...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Testing

Hi -- I'm seeing the same issue as others, black screen after loading and sometimes causing my Roku to restart. I am using Rokxbox Xstream -- should I switch to cloud or remove and download or should I just wait for an update? Thanks! Make sure you go to the system screen in the regular roku menu (...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Testing

When I talked to the developer a few days ago, he said he is still having issues with the new coding and initial setup.  He is aware of the issue and still working on it.  So, basically - if you had it running before it should be ok, but if you hadn't, the channel will still not work. Having said th...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Testing

So does this roksbox gizmo play DVD vob files? I just bought the Roku ultra to replace my ailiing wdtv and it does not play :(VOB No, it does not - Roku's only play h264 files (either in m4v or mkv containers) - you have to either transcode them or use Plex which will transcode on the fly from a ho...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Testing

Spoke to the developer real quick - he is aware of the issue and is still working around the new Roku coding that is out there that channels have to adhere to, plus the recent OS change (I did notice it changed a few days ago, the whole Roku OS).  He will hopefully have a fix soon for it (at least t...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Testing

Now new issue with Roksbox Cloud - it doesn't load at all - it gets past the splash screen, I see a quick blip and then my guess is it is trying to reach a webserver and just hangs with a blank screen (it used to do this a long time ago to fetch themes and then time out after 15 seconds with a cache...

Re: Philo not installing

What Roku players do you have? You can install channels from the web site but if your player doesn't support it you will never see it on the player. If you have older players, that could be the issue. That's what I thought - I have Roku 2's - but somewhere that limitation should be listed I would t...

Philo not installing

The newly launched Philo channel announced 11/14/17 sounded great - so I installed via roku’s website... but the channel never installs on my rokus.  I have done system update checks, reboots - they never show.  On the roku website, it says it is installed.  When I look for the channel in the channe...

Re: MythRokuPlayer

I can't speak for everyone, but I stopped using the Roku MythTV channel some time ago in favor of the Plex Channel, in combination with a script that transcodes the myth recordings and organizes them in a manner that they show up in a Plex TV library.  Works just great for me.  I am considering it,...

Re: MythRokuPlayer

New issue with channel - since an upgrade on my backend, the channel works fine - but no matter WHAT, when you go to play a video it just blips the loading screen and errors out.  I also use rocksbox (basically using apache to allow content to show up on your local network) and that will play the my...

Re: MythRokuPlayer

Okay, I had a new episode show up today, and only that episode.  At first I thought it was a bad table, but they check out okay.  I installed Rshendershots latest git hub (from a year ago) and more videos DID show up, but not all - plus a bunch of other videos that are in my Videos group... not ever...

Re: MythRokuPlayer

For some reason mythrokuplayer stopped working for me... I can get into the channel, I can look up schedule records, but when I try to view recordings it just hangs at retrieving.  I do believe python got an upgrade yesterday on my system. Now I know there is some program you can use to check you se...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

I just purchased RoksBox xStream for Roku. I want to use it with a MyCloud NAS that runs Twonky. RoksBox found the drive, and finds all the video files, listing the Volume name for each. When I select any of the videos, the next screen says "empty". I am unable to play any of the files. A...
